Lockdown rules are changing fast. Will that mean York Ebor may be open to a few lucky people or will it still take place behind stable doors?
Be prepared and choose an outfit you can dress up or dress down without compromising on the glamour.
The Welcome to Yorkshire Ebor Festival 2020 takes place on 19th–22nd August. At the time of writing it is unknown whether spectators will be allowed, and ticket bookings have currently been suspended.

For dressing up and dressing down, strike gold with Rebbecca Rhoades Alice Amber Gold top as this off the shoulder style top has the matching Shelly Amber Gold skirt to create a chic outfit for the races.
Both in cheerful mustard yellow, the top has a front pleated detail, nips in to the waist and flares at the bottom. Price £140. The midi skirt is high waisted with a mermaid frill hemline. Price £100.
Don’t worry if the races are closed, you can watch with a few friends at the pub, or at your own garden gathering. The top will still work, just dress it down a pair of shorts.
Denim, cargo, cycle or Bermuda shorts, any style will look good. We’ve chosen silky Ganni yellow rose shorts in 100% silk with a high waist. Price £194, available from YOOX.com.
Jewellery will always dress up an outfit. – choose a few pieces from our Summer Sparklers article.
Alternatively, there is the Black freshwater pearl collar necklace by Pastel Gems via Etsy. Price £40.
Nevertheless, that doesn’t mean you can’t wear jewellery when you are dressing down an outfit. Go simple and playful with Les Georgettes Papillon pendant in gold finish. Was £19, now £13.
Dress up with this cute Rose mini handbag by Sarah Haran in striking shagreen texture. Price £275. The vintage form of Sarah’s first handbag design inspired the Rose handbag. Made from Italian leather.
Sarah Haran is also the winner of the handbags section in our EM Design Awards 2020. Congratulations Sarah!
Dress down and shine with Aceline mini rucksack by Millisimo via Etsy in copper Italian leather. Price £129.
For the first time in months you may be able to wear a hat!!
Marigold by Sharper Millinery has a stunning bright yellow straw base cut into a dramatic curl trimmed in black ribbon. Adorned with a large black crin rose and black onion grass. Price £195.
Whether you are dressing up or dressing down, you still need the essential face covering. Give it a flutter with TLC Butterfly Face Mask from The Tight Spot. Price £16.95.
Double layered, lined with soft cotton and finished with two head elastics with adjustable toggle for a great fit. Made from a large Christian Lacroix print so the pattern will change from mask to mask.
